We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone for their contributions and continued support of our Annual Seize the Day Event!
This year, due to covid restrictions, we encouraged you to seize the day your way and spread epilepsy awareness in your local community. We loved seeing your pictures and how you chose to celebrate and participate in our virtual 2.5K walk/ 5K run from September 24 – 26, 2021.
We are so grateful for your participation and support and are happy to announce, that with your help, we exceeded our fundraising goal to provide support and educational services for families living with epilepsy! As pledges continue to trickle in, our fundraising total has risen to an incredible $103,366 (a record year)!! Our agency relies heavily on our fundraising efforts, donations and support from the community to operate, your donation will help to ensure we can provide services and support to individuals and families affected by epilepsy in your community. Thank you!
